People talk about how racy Joe Eszterhas is. Why? Sliver is one of the dreariest thrillers ever. Consenting adults having sex? Oooh, how shocking! Sharon Stone getting busy while relaxing in the tub? Gee, I'll bet no woman has ever done that before. (At least not with both hands gripping the sides of the bath. No wonder Sharon seems to be concentrating so hard.) Painting generic sexual curiosity as unspeakable depravity and then showing a Baldwin butt-naked with a flourish is a silly way to try and shock an audience, unless you intend your audience to be made up of elderly nuns. Eszterhas and Noyce don't bother with suspense or logic. They just present T&A as though it's the CGI in Jurassic Park, i.e. something new and awe-inspiring. If you've never had sex before, or you've got a thing for Sharon or Billy, then Sliver might be an exciting experience. Otherwise, avoid.
